John and I have an amazing opportunity to go on a missions trip to Jamaica with the rest of the leadership of our house church (Our Gathering Place). We have never been on a missions trip before and we are both extremely excited about the prospect.

The most difficult part of this is that we are supposed to leave in two short weeks. We strongly believe that this is something God wants us to be a part of so we are sending out a plea for you to partner with us both in prayer and financially! The rest of the team has already purchased their tickets and we have a very limited time for this to happen.

We will be ministering to several church groups, at an elementary school, and to several communities in Jamaica. The total cost will be $2000 for both of us.

Please consider helping us in any way that you can and pray that God will make a way for us to go!

Blessings and Thanks so much!

John and Shirley

Our missions group leaves on Thursday, 2/25, and as of today we have received only one of our passports. But guess what! We weren't even suppose to have gotten this one yet, and I am certain it will be here either today or tomorrow. Father has been so awesome in His faithfulness.

We are feverishly working to get ready for our trip. Do we have all we need? No, not yet, but we are preparing while waiting.

This  IS the day that the Lord has made, and another day to follow His leading and directives. I WILL rejoice and be glad in it.

The wonderful family in Jamaica is already being so gracious to us in preparations and prayer, even before we arrive. We're all anxious to see what God has in store for His children.

Isn't it amazing how Father know what we need, when we need it, and sometimes even when we don't know what we need?! He constantly amazes me for sure. What an awesome God He is. He is my friend.

It's 10 days and counting! We're excited to see what our God will do. It is ALL in His hands. If it's His plan, He will fund it.
